@ Saunder, read the thread and you'll learn about the deliciousness that is milk gravy.

@ everyone else, funny which posts generate a lot of comment. I mean who'd'a thunk biscuits would be such a hot topic.

Squrlz- cholestorol i get checked about once evry two years- the doctor is never keen as he sees no point, blood pressure gets done all the damn time as I am a middle aged woman! But I agree with you about diet- what works for one- my daughter has severe intolerences so eats a diet that would make me ill in days.

@ Gerry: I stand corrected. 'Tis.

Disclaimer: I eat an unusual diet that few people would willingly embrace. So I'm definitely out of the mainstream on dietary matters.

@ Gerry: MOOOOO!

For the most part, I agree with you. And I have no doubt that your biscuits and gravy rock.

Milk has protein and calcium. The world is filled with millions of starving children whose lives could be saved by a couple glasses of it a day. It has its benefits, for sure.

That said, milk--especially whole milk--is loaded with saturated fat which is decidedly NOT good for you and is best avoided, if possible. Coronary artery disease, in fact, is the #1 killer of men and women in the West. In the U.S. alone, more than half a million people die of it every year. Obesity and Type 2 diabetes are running amok. Americans' consumption of milk, cheese, cream sauces, and ice cream is a very big part of the problem.

Squrlz the point is over doing anything will have a negative effect. But people have been drinking cows milk for millennia and it's good for you. I wouldn't suggest you live solely on it of course.

@ Gerry: That's quite the alarmist article there. But it explains why I've had this powerful urge to take up scrapbooking lately. =^.^=

Kidding aside, that article is--forgive me--100% bunk. Numerous scientific studies (such as
this one) have looked into claims that ingesting soy can cause men to grow breasts or become feminized and found zero evidence that such is the case. One key fact never mentioned in that *Men's Health* piece: Human estrogen is approximately 1,000 times more powerful than so-called phytoestrogens.

But the bottom line is you have to judge soy, like anything else, by how it works for you. In my case, replacing 1% cow's milk with nonfat soy milk has been one of the best things I've ever done for my health.

@ squrlz - there are 148 calories in a cup of whole milk and 128 in 2%. 4 servings means it's only 37 and 31 calories respectively per serving. At the numbers you gave that means whole milk gravy is only only 20 calories from fat and only 11 fat calories for 2% milk.

Totally acceptable in a 1500 calorie a day diet.

But too much soy has severe side effects. Men's Health

@ Nubblins: Yes, cow's milk has them--but there are better ways to get them. My soy milk is calcium-fortified and I get still more from eating kale and other leafy green vegetables. As for Vitamin D (and Vitamin B12), I take daily supplements.

@ Gerry: I never drink moo-cow milk. I drink non-fat soy milk (brand is West Soy) and I love it.

Here are the numbers on cow's milk vis-a-vis cholesterol.

Whole milk: 55% of calories from fat.
2% milk: 35% calories from fat.
1% milk: 21% calories from fat.

And all of that fat is saturated fat (i.e., artery-clogging). Not surprisingly, cow's milk has been implicated in the development of heart disease, hyptertension, diabetes, and prostate cancer.

(OK, I'll stop now. I said I wasn't going to preach.)

@ Madduck: If you've had your cholesterol checked and it's low (below 200 mg/dL or 5.172 mmol/l), that's great. Clearly you've got good genes when it comes to how your body processes fat. Exercise certainly helps, but it's no guarantee of heart health, as the death of Jim Fixx, the American runner, showed. He was thin, ran constantly, and died suddenly in 1984 of a massive heart attack. According to Wikipedia, the autopsy revealed that "atherosclerosis had blocked one coronary artery 95%, a second 85%, and a third 70%."

Just FYI, the total cholesterol level I maintain, below 150 mg/dL, converts to 3.879 mmol/l in your units. Below that level, you simply cannot deposit fat or cholesterol in your arteries.

I get a lot of exercise every day- so I eat what I like. I don't have a taste for sweet things, and I try to eat proper unprocessed food- ethical meat and veg if poss.- Fat I eat loads of it- butter, full fat milk, cream, fat on meat- all the good stuff. Seriously low cholesterol and blood pressure.. but as I said- I get a lot of exercise.

"one of the stuff described here is good for your arteries "

All that milk's gotta be good for you. You can make whole wheat biscuits so that's healthier. Turkey sausage?... no, that's an abomination.

LOL. This thread continues to amuse.

@ Madduck: American biscuits aren't really like scones. They have a flakiness all their own. What makes good biscuits and gravy is you have this warm, powdery, flaky biscuit ladled with hot, savory, peppery milk gravy. The combination of the moist gravy with the dry biscuit--and the salty, yeasty, sweet flavors--are wonderful.

That said, none of the stuff described here is good for your arteries so I haven't eaten it in years. I try to keep my total cholesterol below 150 mg/dL--and to accomplish that (without meds), you need to switch to a plant-based, no-oil diet. (I won't preach but if anyone wants info on this, contact me via my e-mail address on my profile.)

Okay- what you damn colonials refer to as biscuits are scones sans sugar, and milk gravy is a thin bechamel. Sausage gravy is just weird- especially as it does not go on a proper sausage- Now, a nice pile of PROPER sausages, with onion gravy and possibly cheesy mash is a meal worth having. So I am. Onion gravy- caramelise a kg onions, add a good soupspoon of flour, cook off until lightly browned ( the roux that is not the already brown onions) add half bottle of red and equal amount of good stock or demi-glace of you have it, cook off for 15 mins.. add spoon made mustard and a splash of balsamic. You are welcome.

This is NOT redneck brunch!!! I am about as liberal as they come and I LOVE biscuits and sausage gravy, add a couple eggs, over easy and multiple slices of bacon and more sausage and you got yourself a great meal any time of day or night.

It's really entertaining reading the European puzzlement at this and the American explanations. (Patchouly, you did well!)

Madduck - chicken gravy isn't brown.
Read the recipe below for country gravy. Also called milk gravy or sausage gravy.

It's the same gravy used in Schitt on a Shingle only with chip beef instead of sausage.

Sausage gravy is white because milk.
